on internationally as i am about what barack obama and his administration are doing domestically. why do i say that? one of the most memorable days of my life was 9/11 when after the planes struck the world trade center in new york, i was in my west wing office, working with my speech writer, and some of the staff gathered around when word came down that there had been an attack in new york and shortly after that the door to my office burst open, one of my secret service agents came in, he was sitting down in a chair, and he said, sir, we are leaving now. he did not ask. he did not ask if it was ok with me. he grabbed me with one hand and propelled me out the door and down the stairs, headed for the emergency operation bunker underneath the white house. he got part way down there, got into a tunnel, and he told me the reason they had effectuated evacuated me was because there was a hijacked aircraft that have been reported by dulles, headed towards crown. that was american flight 77 that went into the pentagon. what emerged out of that whole day obviously was not a terrorist act, it was not a law e

this month, president obama announced that he would once again pivot to the economy. the bottom line of his speech, after 4 1/2 years of the obama administration, quote, we're not there yet, end quote. the president is right. we're not there yet. economic growth is the key to job creation and recovery, but america's growth rate is anemic. from 2010-2012 it barely averaged 2%. in the fourth quarter of 2012, it was 1/4 of 1%. according to the most recent estimates. these figures translate into deep economic pain for america's workers and families. the june, 2013 jobs report showed an increase of 240,000 in the number of discouraged workers, those who have quit looking for a job out of frustrn pe working part-time, who really want full-time work past 8.2 million, that is a jum of 322 tchourks in just one month. worst of all, the truest measure, the rate that includes both discouraged workers and those who cannot find a full-time job continues to exceed 20 million americans. that rate rows from 13.8% back to 14.3% in june. america's labor force participation rate has fallen to levels not seen s

message to congress would be to defund obama care and the immigration bill in the house, nothing should be done with it, because they should -- they should actually not vote on it, they should allow it to go, i am not for immigration reform at all. i think that the government is too large and that what congress should do is try to get limited government down to smaller government, as it should be, constitutionally. host: do you think that the republican should hold strong and d funding health care and shut down the government? caller: i think that they should defund obama care, that is it. obama care. we are talking about specific bills. the president is talking about going the other way. he sponsored the mandate on businesses. he himself is saying that with obama care, if he sees responses to obama care, why should he go ahead with it? i think we should defund obama care, not the government. host: ok. that was knowle, new york, independent caller. health care is certainly one of the issues that has come up at these town hall meetings, at many of them, whether republican, democrat, or i

with obama, this is the line i came up with, i think president obama acts like an executive. he has really pushed a lot of the war and expanded a lot of the global war on terror that has done it through secret operations. a little bit under a year and a half, and it is a notification to congress, yes, we are doing counterterrorism activity. and then nothing else. these are complicated partnerships and almost secret wars conducted entirely at the classification level. obama has done a lot of that and does not really talk about it erie it he has chosen to wage war in secret. the thing about doing these things under so much secrecy is that, just as you can expand, you can also take it away and not have much of a debate, either. a lot of trust right now in the executive ranch, and maybe there has to be. i am not saying i know the answer here. the way that obama has approached this is he has done quite a bit in a lot of these places, including somalia. he has made it appear the war is winding down. the question is, will that translates into winding down secret operations he has continued? >> wh
.3 million people organized online, the largest list outside the obama campaign. and we moved more than one million new and unlikely voters to the polls, and we have more than 1.2 million organized voters. that is how we do our work, and that is what gives us the power to do what you have seen us do, whether in maryland or new york city, where we have worked with a broad range of groups to push mayor bloomberg, forced mayor bloomberg to stop what is the largest local racial profiling program in the entire country. and we just produced a veto- proof majority, second time in a row. first time for the vote, second to override his vetoes, and we did that because we are organizing, we are building big, broad audacious coalitions. the march on washington will be referred to as a grand alliance, and we are winning. today i want to talk about the history of racial profiling. we in this country, as a young country, have no excuse not to know our own history. and when we forget our history, we repeat our history, and we do so at a great price. specifically, i want to talk to you today about a century
. it was not an overwhelming kingdom or nothing like that, it is just the disrespect of the presidency, as president obama has suffered with respect and decency. nixon had it, even though he was a vital person in some eyes. i am asking you to comment on two points. one, that affirmative action presentation came from richard nixon, a republican. two, i wonder if you can comment on the actual economic price freezes that nixon instituted during his term. today we have presidents who lack the guts to perform as he did. i think thin if you could please comment on the fact that republicans today reject affirmative action and economic price freezes and the fact that the presidency has lost the respect of the congressional connection. host: not quite about the film but the presidency as he sees it. guest: i will do my best. i will not claim to be a policy expert, but i think a lot of people feel the way you do. i know not chomsky preferred to the last liberal president. i think it is a fair point. you say you are a republican during the nixon administration. i think that is true of a lot of people. one thing we inter
interesting to note when there have been meetings with obama and putin the kind of tension we noticed earlier this year. their russian counterparts. willie meetings distilled take place? guest: that is right. that meeting today with kerry, hagel, and the russian counterparts will take place as scheduled. the way they're friending it is they will discuss of how we can best make progress moving forward. also, not indicating there has not been a complete break of some kind, but definitely send a strong message that the relationship has been harmed by the latest incident. -- andn depomed part diplomat talk where the white house called russia's a disappointing decision on edward snowden, what do you read into that? heard that language again and again from jay carney, that the u.s. is deeply disappointed, the president again saying last night that we are disappointed. there have been a lot of complaints from u.s. officials about the way the russians had handled this move, even though there were signs that it might be coming. for instance, they weren't giving a heads-up up that it was taking place.
